2011 Poetry Day at the Carnegie Museum  

Professor of English and poet Marc Hudson and four students from his advanced poetry course celebrated the last day of National Poetry Month with a visit to Crawfordsville's Carnegie Museum.

More than 80 local residents and students from elementary schools and all three county high schools attended this first-ever "Poetry Day" at the museum, enjoying the chance to hear poetry read aloud and to try their own hands at writing poems of their own.

"We are so glad that the Wabash students and Professor Hudson were willing to partner with us on the event," said museum director Kat Burkhart. "We were very pleased by the turnout and by the interaction between the presenters and their audience, and the breakout tables were really good for the
younger crowds especially, although I am sure all ages enjoyed them."
